    Someone told me these are Fenton Glass items, but there are no markings and I have not found them anywhere. These were in my Aunt's estate along with many other glassware items I need identified.
    Any help would be great.

    Little vase is 3-3/4" tall with clear glass on bottom and milky white on top - hobnail design.
    Heart shaped candy dish? with handle on the top. Milky white edges and clear glass with hobnail throughout.

    Mystery Solved

      these do look like Fenton and the crystal with the 'white' highlights is called opalescent; and you are correct in calling them hobnail. The vase would be a Fenton Opalescent Hobnail bud vase. The other dish is possibly called a candy dish or nappy.
